Student feedback and the 70-496 Exam

By Anthony Borton

As the TFS courseware author and lead ALM trainer for QuickLearn, I work hard to try to make sure our eight TFS 2013 courses are best of breed. Students who attend our training are often doing so not only for the skills and knowledge to help them do their job more efficiently, but quite a few are also attending the course as preparation for the Microsoft ALM Certification.

This morning I opened my inbox to find the following email from a student I had on one of our courses two weeks ago.

To Anthony Borton and the QuickLearn Team

I took exam 70-496 today and passed.  This was due to your excellent coverage of the myriad of detail required for TFS Administration and use.  I recommend your courses to all who wish to be successful with TFS.

Thank you!

Tom Williams

While I am in this profession because of my passion for helping people succeed, getting this feedback is also very rewarding.

Thanks for letting us know how you got on with the exam Tom and congratulations on passing the exam. I hope to see you again when you’re studying for the next exam.



Microsoft Exam 70-497: Software Testing with Visual Studio 2012

By moniquebu

Congratulations to Anthony Borton on becoming a Microsoft Quality Enablement Specialist. Anthony is Quicklearn’s lead TFS trainer and courseware developer and earlier this week he passed Microsoft exam 70-497: Software Testing with Visual Studio 2012. This is one of three exams Microsoft have recently released focusing on TFS 2012.

If you’d like to become a Microsoft Quality Enablement Specialist, the best way to prepare yourself for the exam is to attend one of our upcoming courses.

Our Software Testing with Visual Studio 2012 course is a 2-day course that gets you up to speed with all aspects of testing using Microsoft Test Manager 2012.

Student feedback from the most recent course has been overwhelmingly positive and here’s just one example from an attendee.

Anthony was FANTASTIC! Did a great job of keeping it interactive for the full 2 days. He explained things very well and at a level for all attendees, especially with the diverse backgrounds and work experiences.” – October 2012.
